Patagonia women's Alpine Guide Jacket - The Alpine Guide Jacket and Pants are highly durable, breathable soft shells made of a new wind-resistant Polartecr Power Shieldr Stretch Woven fabric to both protect and vent on extended, demanding climbs or ski tours. Polartecr Power Shieldr Stretch Wovens are enhanced with Polartecr Hardfacer technology to dramatically increase abrasion and snag/pick resistance, improve lasting durable water repellency, reduce moisture gain in wet conditions and accelerate dry-times. Polartecr Power Shieldr Stretch Woven fabrics offer a dramatic improvement on the original soft shell concept - single layer woven fabrics that deliver excellent weather protection, high breathability and lasting durability for harsh use.
